Connection is what drives innovation in placemaking: connected citizens, communities, public and private stakeholders; connected infrastructures and systems; connected data and information; connected languages and standards. By embedding intelligent connection at every level of our social infrastructure we can make places that work holistically for all of us, and the world we live in. The exponential evolution of digital technology is delivering the tools needed to create connected places fit not just for the future wellbeing of people and the environment – but also for innovative infrastructure and entrepreneurial economies.
We are here to drive that innovation and help grow the economy. We do this by collaborating and broker relationships with:
- Small and large businesses to help them innovate and become market leaders
- Cities and local governments to clearly define problems, source solutions and build markets
- Research and academia to create world-class research and networks
- Local communities and citizen-groups working to better their own places
